Police in California are investigating after a man drove his Jeep off the roof of a six-level parking garage and into a McDonald’s across the street.

Police responded just after midnight Sunday and found a newer-model Jeep against a building, the Santa Monica Police Department said in a press release.  The Santa Monica Fire Department reported it received information that the Jeep had been driven off the top of a parking garage.

The only person inside the Jeep was the 20-year-old male driver who, according to police, was conscious and speaking with officers. 

The fire department extricated the man from the vehicle and he was taken to a local hospital in critical condition. He was stable as of Sunday, according to the police department. There were two other people in the Jeep with the driver, but they both jumped out before the Jeep was driven off the top of the garage, according to the fire department.
